Flourless Quinoa Pancakes

By

For a while I’ve been on the hunt for a great low-glycemic, flour-free pancake recipe.  I couldn’t find one.   I was inspired by this recipe, which I tried out and didn’t like.  The texture just wasn’t pancake-y enough and the flavor too eggy.  So I did the only sensible thing, and invented my own Flourless Quinoa Pancake recipe.

The Stuff:
2 c cooked quinoa
1/2 c almond or coconut milk
4 eggs
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 packets stevia powder
dash cinnamon
1 tsp (or more) vanilla extract

The Do:
Process the quinoa in a food processor for 1 – 2 minutes, until the shape of the kernels is no longer visible (sorry, I should have photographed this).  Add the eggs and milk, and process another few seconds.  Add remaining ingredients and process until the batter is well mixed.  Batter should look like this:

Scoop batter, 1/4 cup at a time, onto a hot skillet coated with coconut oil or butter.  We like to sprinkle pecans or walnuts on ours at this point.

Makes about a dozen small, yummy, protein-and-fiber-rich pancakes.  Use whatever toppings you love.  We like pure maple syrup if we’re splurging on sugar. I’ve also made my own sugar-free blueberry syrup using xylitol, with good results.
